This is a nice session brown ale. Had at the brewpub in a pint glass. Appearance of dark brown with no head (although this could have been because it took a while for the beer to arrive at the table). The aroma and the taste matched up on this one with sweet and nutty roasted malt. Some toffee flavors also.

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 29, 2008
(10/19/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Philadelphia. Brown color with a beige head. Aroma of slightly smoked malt, some caramel, some nuts and bready notes. Sweetish flavor with malt, nuts, a bit of smokiness and some toasted bread notes. Medium-bodied. Nice. Has more character than most Brown Ales.

Deep brown pour, nose is quite roasty. Mouth was chocolaty and very enjoyable. As a self exclaimed hated of brown ales, this was quite a treat!

Draft - part of sampler at brewery. Pours a med-to-dark brown color with a nice creamy, off=white head. Aroma is roasted malts and a hint of semi-dark chocolate. Flavor is mostly the roasted malts, with a slight balancing with some mild hops and a little sweetness from the chocolate notes. Medium bodied. Rather drinkable.

Cask @ NH - Dark brownish crimson, thin off white head. Roasted milk chocolate aromas warm to notes of toast and caramel. Milk chocolate flavors balance on soft toasty notes. Just a hint of bitterness rounds this out well Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A nice session ale...

Pours just short of opaque. Nose is woody. Flavor is whoa! Nice and hearty. Woody character. Thick robustness that is nowhere near overdone. Slight bitter back tone. Feel is thick enough on the liquid. Has a good level of carbonation. Very drinkable. A good brown ale. If you see it, go for it.

Draft-Nodding Head Center City Philadelphia. Dark Brown ale, came highly recommended but not a big fan. It does have a slight chocolate/earthy flavor but overall nothing overwhelming and not enjoyable to me when it was serviced lukewarm. Its still better than Monkey Knife fight...
